Chiropractic in Rockville and Gaithersburg

Below is an educational post from a good pal of mine.  He’s a chiropractor in Gaithersburg, so listen up!

If you or someone close to you has recently been involved in a vehicle accident, chances are, you need to be seen by a chiropractor.

One of the most debilitating and common injuries from a car crash are the symptoms of “whiplash.” Whiplash can occur whenever an impact causes a sudden, jerking movement of the head backward, forward or even to the side. Whiplash can destabilize the spine, cause alignment issues, soft tissue damage, and can also cause severe pain as well as some of these other symptoms:

• Blurred vision
• Neck pain
• Headache
• Dizziness or vertigo
• Shoulder pain
• Arm pain
• Stiffness of the neck
• Lower back pain

It is critical that you seek chiropractic care immediately after a car crash. If you allow your whiplash symptoms you run the risk of causing yourself long-term or permanent injury or pain. The severity of the physical effects of an automobile accident are not always evident immediately following the crash. Sometimes it can take days, weeks or even months for your symptoms to appear, which is why getting chiropractic care soon after the crash can be essential for maintaining the health of your spine.

Any time your body is jarred or unexpectedly pushed beyond its normal range of motion, you can sustain injuries such as stretched or torn tendons or ligaments, herniated discs, and other problems. Tissues supporting the head and neck are especially susceptible to this type of trauma during a collision. Since we chiropractors specialize in the care and treatment of bones, muscles, nerves and connective tissue, it’s a near-imperative to visit us after an auto accident.

Getting immediate chiropractic care and treatment means you’re more likely to realize full recovery, experience less pain, and heal more quickly than without. Even a minor collision that seems benign–with minimal damage to the car itself–can still cause serious injury to the driver or passengers. Studies have shown than an impact of just 10 miles-per-hour can induce g-forces of up to 9G’s in the neck!

Chiropractic treatments help restore your mobility and function. Don’t cheat yourself if you’ve been involved in a car crash. You could have insidious injuries to your body and not even know it–until it may be too late.

Best Damn Dog Boarding in Maryland

Hey Hey!Dog Boarding in Gaithersburg

What’s happenin’ blog base?

I just wanted to give a shout out to Moe Lindesey over at iCare Canine Pet Services.

The man’s got some serious skills when it comes to dogs.  He’s been training ’em for years, and has one helluva local following.

His business has been growing like crazy.  Every time I see the poor guy, he looks like he hadn’t slept in a week.  lol.

But still, he’s up and at ’em every day, in the office at 5:00Am to check on the boarding dogs and get ready for the next day.  I see him holding classes with clients and he’s always on top of his game.  Customers love this guy, and it shows.  Just Google the business name and check out the reviews…  damn!

He just opened up a new facility in Gaithersburg, on Oakmont Ave, right around the corner from Shady Grove Metro.

He and Annemarie set up this really cool Gaithersburg Dog Day Care thing, except they go a step further, calling it Dog Day School.  ‘Cause they don’t just crate your dog all day…  they don’t let ’em run wild and undisciplined all day either.

The man has a plan…

Any of the dogs in the Day School, any of them staying for the Gaithersburg Dog Boarding or Rockville Dog Boarding program, all follow a structured schedule.

They have scheduled breaks, play times, and what sets iCare Canine Pet Services’ boarding and daycare apart from the rest, they each get two training sessions a day with Moe himself or another experienced trainer.

You just tell ’em what you want the dog to improve on, and they get to work on it.

That right there is worth a TON.  At least to me.

You can’t forget about the training classes either.  That’s how they got their start and still what their famous for today.  They still offer the same group classes, private lessons, in-home day camps, and multi-week board & train programs.

All-in-all, they’ve grown into one helluva company.  You couldn’t ask for anyone better qualified to watch after your best friend.

Call these guys NOW. lol.

No, Seriously…

Do it. 🙂
